President Barack Obama hit North Korea with new sanctions Wednesday in response to the country's "illicit" nuclear and ballistic missile tests earlier this year. An executive order signed by the president implements two sets of sanctions: those that unanimously cleared the U.N. Security Council and a separate round of U.S. sanctions enacted by Obama after Congress overwhelmingly approved and sent him legislation. The executive order prohibits the exportation of goods, services and technology to North Korea and prohibits new investment in North Korea.
